I feel like this reply was very harsh. After all beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I personally like ideas that reuse items that would otherwise just go to the landfill. Not to mention its CHEAP! Maybe its the bio nerd in me but I do find the flask and ring stand to have some aesthetic appeal. I noticed that they sanded down the rough edges, and there was no other damage. Seems like a plausible idea to me!Yeah nothing says safety like jagged broken glass hanging over your tank. Besides that and the fact that something like this is the picture of ugly, why would you want to do this? My guess is it shatters and breaks then pumps water all over the floor within a week.
